The cottage was just as the reviews described, funky, cozy, beautiful and artfully done. The kitchen was equipped with 2 burner propane stove and frig, toaster, microwave and high quality cooking pans. BBQ also available which we used one night. Also TV but who needs that on vacay? Everything was spotlessly clean, and everywhere you look there is a different plant or work of art. Tracey the host was ever on the ready if anything was needed but not at all intrusive though the cottage is attached to her house. She is a delight! It was a my birthday and she even hung up balloons at the door and wrote a nice card to me, though I had only mentioned it once in passing. Garage parking was excellent. 2 blocks to the beach and could hear the surf pounding as we fell asleep. Two large dogs and a cat, all very friendly and provided nice at home touch without being intrusive. Great location for access into Cape Town or to the southern points. Will definitely be back and highly recommend this rental.

“A lovely cottage in a perfect location”

We chose the cottage in Muizenberg to celebrate a 30th birthday. It was a perfect location for beautiful beaches, surf, accessibility to all regions of Cape Town and all the 'must-dos' when visiting the area.

The cottage had real charm and reflected the artistic character of it's owner Tracey, with a lovely garden and pool area. Tracey's warm welcome made it possible to relax into our holiday with ease.

This cottage is a real find and we would certainly recommend it.

What an unexpected find! The owner, Tracey, is a photographer and her artistic sensibilities resulted in a delightfully original experience. She was also super helpful with local info and suggestions. The cottage is comfortably appointed and the pool was a godsend in the heat. Thank you Tracey, we will be back!
